Question about Sanyo PLC XP46 Multimedia Projector
My father bought the wrong lamp for the projector and broke the molex lamp conector housing out of the projector trying to force it in. I supper glued it all back but the molex pins were striped of there support hooks and so when the male pin try's to go into the female, the female pin just pushes out the back of the lamp housing connector. So I tried using **** wire connectors bypassing the molex housing altogether. After this I got some response from the lamp, but it was just a faint flickering, and then the projector turned off. So then I soldered the wires of the lamp and ballast cables together, and wrapped them with electrical tape. The flickering became more aggressive and then the lamp would sometimes fire up, and sometimes the projector would give up and shut down. I used it for a few days like this but it wasn't long before the bulb exploded. Here are my questions. Is a molex connector really so much better then solder and electrical tape that the wires are shorting out? If so, how can i find out the size and model of the replacement molex pins. I have the housings, but my pins are broken. I tried cpu power supply molex pins from an old pc and they are just barely too small. Lastly, if it is not my conection to the lamp, what do you think it might be?

Could be a burnt capacitor on the circuit board. Replace capacitor if you can determine which one it is. There are only a few.
